Christmas is just around the corner and with it comes some of my favorite things to shop for – gifts for the foodie, baker or entertainer in your life. This year I’ve listed ten of my favorite things that are functional, beautiful and sure to make anyone on your gift list smile.
- This is absolutely one of the most used items in my kitchen. While I tend to love the look of rich wood pepper mills they just don’t cut it in the performance department. This pepper mill grinds effortlessly in half the time most mills do and you won’t end up with carpal tunnel.
- A solid Dutch oven is a staple in every kitchen. This one from Le Cruset has a modern twist with a matte finish and will last a lifetime.
- These cups offer delicate features in unique colors for the coffee or tea lover in your life.
- Cheese lovers and entertainers alike will love showing their home state or USA pride with this slate cheese board.
- Aprons are necessary for messy cooks like me. I love the fun, retro look and details of this apron.
- I love having useful items to store fruits and vegetables on the counter. This copper colander is gorgeous whether it’s draining pasta or holding a bundle of tomatoes.
- Entertaining is always more festive with beautiful stemware. The classic gold rim gets an update with bold stripes.
- A great addition to any baker’s kitchen is a lovely ceramic pie dish that goes from oven to table in style.
- This elegant cookie platter can serve more than just cookies and is a great piece to add to the collection for the entertainer in your life.
- The classic chef’s knife is the heart of any home cooks knife collection. The warm olive wood handle of this one makes the most-used tool beautiful.
Honorable Mention: I can’t have a gift list without including the Kitchenaid stand mixer. While they tend to be pricey they are well worth the investment. I have had mine for years and there really is no substitute when making frosting, cookies, bread dough and more. I love the updated glass bowl on this model.
